Congrats! It looks great. I also wanted to thank you for putting together info on how to upload photos. Terri A. posted it in the contest discussion. It was a great help. Love your dress and review.

It's very charming in a nice, understated way. The color is very flattering with your coloring too. I enjoy reading your reviews, the little comments such as the one about Butterick "getting sassy in it's old age" are funny. Thanks for another wonderful review.

I love your version, the neckline is great and the sleeves are indeed super flattering. Good call on choosing the brocade. I think it has a better hand than the fabric in the original. You've got my vote!

L thedress;looks terrific on you. I am especially impressed with the invisible zipper - boy that hot pink zipper doesn't peek out at all. Nice work!
